BIG-DATA HOROSCOPE SPECULATIVE-DESIGN
The data version of astrology.
What if Facebook launches an app that uses its big-data to give their users spiritual guidance? I asked this question when designing the app “My Datascope”.
My Datascope has an algorithm that can create a complete overview on your spiritual wellbeing. But, it doesn’t tell you how it does it. A godly claim. My Datascope is the data version of astrology. With features that became possible because of the big-data as well as features from existing astrology apps.
Later I asked the question how this would impact people on a personal level and societal level.
